Expel Tony Blair & Peter Mandelson from the Labour Party
Tony Blair is clearly in breach of the rules of Labour membership, having publicly asked voters to consider voting for Conservative or LibDem candidates in the General Election. Members can be expelled from the Party for a number of reasons including 'Supporting or endorsing a candidate or party standing against the Labour Party or one of its candidates' Mr Blair's comments detailed in the link below plainly fit this description and are unacceptable, especially from such a high profile figure. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/tony-blair-vote-tory-lib-dems-labour-brexit-theresa-may-a7697991.html His public comments over the last year, and his actions in supporting organisations whose aims clearly conflict with current Labour policy, have served to undermine and damage Labour to the extent that they must constitute bringing the party into disrepute. Mr Mandelson has stated publicly that he 'works every day to undermine Jeremy Corbyn' and has recently hosted, at his home, a meeting of Labour PLP members who have implied they might break away to form a new part - an event held specifically to discuss ways of bringing down their twice democratically elected leader. This is clearly acting against the interests of the Labour Party, and the fact that Mr Mandelson has contrived to make the event publicly known can only serve to create instability during a period when a General Election is looking increasingly likely. As General Secretary we believe that you have a clear duty to take disciplinary action against both Mr Blair and Mr Mandelson and suspend them from the Party with immediate effect pending an enquiry.
